A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

The New Children’s Museum – San Diego, California

While the doors to The New Children’s Museum in San Diego may be closed due to COVID-19, the Museum’s online projects and activities encourage kids of all ages to make time for play.

These are a few offerings that captured our attention:

Museum Paper Model Kit

Bring the Museum to you with this paper foldable. The Museum Paper Model Kit is a charming representation of the Museum, complete with palm trees.

Educator Resources

With schools closed and the kids at home, you may find yourself playing the role of educator now more than ever. Check out the Museum’s excellent library of activities for educators, including lesson plans. Two of our favourites include Preposterous People Pots and Heather’s Spooky Sculptures.

Social Media

The Museum’s FacebookInstagram, Twitter, and YouTube channels are filled with projects that make use of items you probably have at home. Follow the Museum’s channels so you don’t miss a single opportunity for play.

And, if you’ve been to the Museum in person, now is a great time to leave a positive Google Review to show your support!


Plan your next vacation to include a visit to a play-related store, museum, or private collection.
